Tag Archives: Slow Death by Rubber Duck

Could you pass me those words to eat?

Remember a few weeks ago, when I downplayed the dangers of lead in red lipstick?

Well, Environmental Defence recently released a report. They found heavy metals in 49/49 cosmetics tested. And… wait for it… significant lead in lip gloss. Along with a sprinkling of arsenic for added flavour.

If Environmental Defence sounds familiar, it may be because two employees there wrote Slow Death by Rubber Duck, one of my favourite nightmare-inducing reads. You can see my thoughts about that book here.
